About


Illustrated.dev explains web development through illustration.

Most of these illustrated articles are on JavaScript fundamentals. Because those never go out of style. But you'll also find a few on newer tools like React, Babel, and D3.

I make these because the front-end world is overflowing with confounding things to learn (and JavaScript in particular is 🔥🍌🌟☠ ridiculous sometimes).

Visual metaphors are a wonderfully effective learning tool for the world of programming. All the abstract jargon & syntax is much easier to understand when you can see what's happening through diagrams and analogies.

Not to mention it's a hell of a lot more interesting than slogging through some fat textbook.
